Sampson

Age: appx. 2 years
Gender: male
Breed: Anatolian shepherd/mastiff mix breed
Does well with: children & cats
Special Needs: N/A
Adoption Fee: $100 + tax

 

 

Sampson aka Sammy is still very new to the rescue so we will update as we known more information! He came to us as stray found outside of the Gladstone, ND area. The breed is our best guess based on appearance and size. He is 30 inches tall and 120 lbs (a big boy!) He loves to be outside and is the sweetest dog with people. He seems to do fine with cats but at this time, until we can work with him further, we are going to specify no other dogs. We would like to see him with an experienced large breed dog owner who does their research about Anatolian Shepherds. They have epic protective instincts! He’s currently in a foster home with children and hasn’t had an issue with them.

Georgia

Age: 1 year
Gender: female
Breed: Large Mix Breed/Unknown
Does well with: Dogs, Cats, & children
Special Needs: N/A
Adoption Fee: $100 + tax

 

 

Georgia has had a rough start to life! She spent most of her young life outdoors and it took her awhile to trust being an inside, family dog. She’s still fairly timid but learning to trust. After she meets and trusts other dogs, she will play for hours! She’s doing well with potty and kennel training. She doesn’t love to sit still for pictures but other than that, she’s a great girl! She still has some anxiety but is ready for her forever family!

Lucy

Age: 1 1/2 years
Gender: female
Breed: min pin/husky mix breed
Does well with: children, dogs, & cats
Special Needs: N/A
Adoption Fee: $100 + tax

 

 

We just found out that Lucy was previously a Raise the Woof dog who was re-homed instead of returned to the rescue. After talking to Raise the Woof, Lucy will be staying with us! Lucy is a 1.5 year old min pin Husky mix. She was surrendered to the pound in Dickinson and moved to us. She is good with kids, good with other dogs, but is not a big fan of all men. She did good with the few we introduced her too but did not like the man that surrendered her for what ever reason. She’s sort of a hoot and is very vocal while playing (gotta love those husky voices!)

Romeo

Age: 1-1/2 years
Gender: male
Breed: Husky/Lab Mix Breed
Does well with: children, dogs, & cats
Special Needs: N/A
Adoption Fee: $100 + tax

 

 

Meet Romeo! He's only been with the rescue for about a week, but he's really come out of his shell. For the first few days, he was too scared to come out of his kennel and didn't eat or drink or even use the bathroom. However, with some gentle love (and bribes) he's now an entirely new dog. We believe him to him about a year or year and a half old. Breeds are best guess based on appearance and size. Currently working on his potty and crate training. He does extremely well with kids. We took him with to meet a girl scout troop and he thrilled us and them! He would do very well in a home with lots of kids to play with. He also loves to play with other dogs and is submissive when someone gets snippy with him. He did great with the cat we tested him with and is neutered and ready for his home!

This handsome young man is Riker. He approximately 4-6 years old, is up to date on his vaccines, and is neutered. He's housebroken and is learning basic commands. He gets along great with other dogs and loves rolling in the snow.

Marissa Rath

Hello! My name is Marissa Rath. I’m a single-parent raising a 4-year old son and two dogs. Kopa is a four year old Chiweenie. I took him and his sister in after finding out the abuse they had suffered and that they were going to be put-down. I ended up finding a home for the female but Kopa grew very attached to my son and vice-versa so he was here to stay. Amelia is a two year old Golden Retriever/Bulldog mix that looks nothing like either breed. I had fostered her and her ten puppies for another rescue and once all the puppies found forever homes, I kept her. I’ve been part of the rescue community for about four years and enjoy every second of it. I work full-time for an insurance company as a claims benefit specialist and part-time cutting hair. I’ve been a licensed cosmetologist for nine years. In my spare time, I love to cook and have been a vegetarian for thirteen years. I live for my daily coffee and you can find me most happy with my nose buried in a book. I am a certified holistic health coach and a wellness advocate for doTERRA Essential Oils. I am also certified in holistic tarot and crystal healing.

Melissa Carson

Hello! I am Melissa Carson. I’m married with a 4-year old son and two dogs. Goose is a Golden Retriever and Rooster is an English Mastiff. I work full-time at an engineering firm and in my spare time I spend time with my family and dogs, playing volleyball, and shooting. My family loves to camp in the summer and we have a large backyard to spend time in with friends. I started fostering for another rescue a few years ago and got to see a senior dog find his forever family. After that, I was hooked on the feeling of pure joy of seeing the connection between dog and human come alive.

Tiffany Christensen

Hello! My name is Tiffany Christensen. I have been involved in animal rescue and dog training for over 15-years. After witnessing firsthand the hundreds of adoptable dogs being euthanized for behavioral problems that could be easily corrected, I began working with rescues to help rehabilitate and train their harder-to-adopt dogs to overcome their problems and become more likely to be adopted. I am an advocate for the No-Kill Initiative and firmly believe that all dogs deserve a chance at life. I moved to North Dakota in 2010 and fell in love with the area. In 2016, I opened Kanine Kingdom which offers doggy daycare, kennel-free boarding, and scientific based dog training to the Williston area. I currently live in Willison, ND with 9-dogs that I affectionately call my ‘kids’. Hunter is a 12-year old Labrador. Gunner is a 6-year old Mastiff/Lab mix. Rhaurie is a 6-year old Irish Wolfhound. Freddie is a 3-year old Irish Wolfhound/Lab mix. Cooper is a 12-year of Bichon. Lucy is a 3-year old Pomeranian/Dachshund mix. Ethel is an 8-year old Chihuahua. Ayana is a 6-year old Irish Wolfhound and Katie is a 1-year old Pitbull mix.
